Cumulative Reading Deficits of Freshman College Students.
Wiggins, Nellie Dawson
The purpose of this study was to use the case study method to diagnose and analyze disabled college readers and to determine their specific reading deficiencies. The subjects for this study were black male freshman volunteers, between the ages of 19 and 24, enrolled in a small, church related college in the Southwest. Negative environmental factors were found in the home and school. Positive and negative self-concepts were found, and personality disturbances were evidenced. Disabilities were found in word recognition skills, comprehension, and rate of reading. And oral reading reflected the disabilities found in word recognition skills. It was concluded that the level of the disabilities and the specific deficiencies of the subjects were representative of a cumulative educational deficit. (Author/RB)
